issuing the latest update moments ago. hurricane sandy getting stronger and now bearing down on the entire eastern seaboard. it's expected to collide not only with two other storms but also as you well know with the presidential election in its last full week of campaigning to go. these are some pictures we recently got in of the worst damage so far from delaware to north carolina, new york, and new jersey. the president left the campaign trail today and returned to washington canceling campaign stops in florida and ohio and a rally planned for tomorrow in wisconsin. a little more than an hour ago, the president spoke at the white house briefing room on preps in place to help the nearly 50 million people who could be affected by this natural disaster. the president did answer one question about the storm's impact on the race. >> i'm worried about the impact on families and i'm worried about the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. the election will take care of itself next week. >> as for governor romney, around noon eastern tim
woos would be added. it's so intriguing the dynamics playing out in the northeast with sandy. when we started with a big calendar ticking down the job reports and the one right before the election, there was some analysis this would be big. it's not. >> one thing that's sort of odd and interesting about this is the three states with the worst unemployment levels, california, nevada and new jersey are solidly democratic. the whole republican argument that this administration has made things worse clearly is not working in those states where things are, in fact, the worst. in other states like nebraska, kansas, north dakota where there's extremely low employment because of shale gas and agriculture, republicans are winning. it's an interesting dynamic in the election in that respect. the real challenge for any new administrati administration, whether it's president obama or governor romney, is we treat it as a national problem and we have huge varieties between states and education levels and gender. >> let's talk about the psyc psychology of it. are people looking at the numbers and me
" is calls what our first read calls the first high wire act following hurricane sandy's devastation with exactly one week into lakz day. we're getting in brand-new video. take a look. this is a glimpse of the severe damage this storm has caused along the jersey shore. this video coming in only a short time ago. aerials from new jersey national guards show entire neighborhoods, homes heavily damaged, many of them covered in sand. sandy is being blamed for at least 29 deaths across the eastern seaboard. this is a deadly storm and damage estimates are right now up to $20 billion and could rise. nearly 8 million people from the carolinas to ohio, 8 million without power. president obama held a conference call with governors and mayors in affected area after declaring several states federal disaster areas. the president canceled all campaign events for the third day. within the past few minutes we got word that the president's travel pool was told to gather at white house, which means the president is going to do something. however, we do not know what that is yet. according to our nbc n
of the new polls? >> hurricane sandy introduced a massive unknown in to the final days of the race and that's the first thing. we are not yet seeing that reflikted in the polling. having said that, it looks for the president's team like they're still holding on in ohio. the margins closed there as in other battleground states but that's an all-important state for both campaigns to win this election, mitt romney is almost going to have to win ohio if not he's going to have to run the table everywhere else. this is a good piece of news for the president out of ohio today. virginia and florida just too close to call. well inside that margin of error. could go either way. but for all the talk you have heard of mitt romney's momentum since the first debate in denver, that fateful first debate, it looks like from this poll the momentum has either stopped or slowed. that, of course, is not the message that the campaign has been putting out over the past couple of days. >> you talk about sandy. there's a big picture of the day will be governor chris christie and president obama together surveying t
the credit. >> let me talk to you a little bit about speaking of getting credit, the response to sandy. part of the president -- and gentlemen, you can all take a look, as well as folks at home. president obama went to fema and washington, d.c. this morning. and this is what he had to say regarding the response to sandy. let's play it. >> leaders of different political parties working together to fix what is broken. [ applause ] now it's a spirit that says no matter how bad a storm is, no matter how tough times are, we're all in this together. we rise or fall as one nation and as one people. >> if we can pull up the marist poll, the nbc "wall street journal," the president's response to sandy. 73% approve in ohio. 70% out of florida. marc caputo, let me bring you in because 70% of the people in the home state of yours approve of his handling. will that have an impact on perhaps not early voter, but on tuesday those who look back and may have heard comments from the republican primary that were made by governor romney regarding fema. we know fema is still popular in that state for the obvious
a lot about whether or not perceptions of the president, certainly after sandy, seeing him walk around and comfort people helps at all. but when you look at early voting, obviously that was in place before sandy. the president talking today with his new modified stump speech really detailing the folks he's fighting for. he says whether they're in urban area or a rural area, this is what i am fighting for, this very passionate speech as part of his closing argument. >> yeah, i think you're right, tamron. what president obama has done in the past week with sandy can only help him. you have 78% of the american public thinks he's done a good job. that's republicans and democrats. think he's done a good job in handling the sandy situation. and the hurricane relief efforts. and then you look at the early voting, as was just mentioned a moment ago, the president has a 35-point advantage in early voting in iowa. a 30-point advantage in ohio. i'm down in florida right now in tampa. he has an early voting advantage here in florida as well, a state that's still neck and neck. and he's making a ve
